I have found a bike that I am interested in buying but the private advert photo of the bike has no number plate and the text has no mention of Tax or MOT. I have asked the question and am currently awaiting a reply. What documents do I need to register the bike in the UK and what is the process. Or should these adverts be avioded completely ?

Does it give an age?
Just a thought, but the number plate may have been omitted so the bike can't be "cloned" (ie, a second indentical bike given a different number, leading to a genuine rider getting speeding fines etc levied on account of the second bike with the same identity).
Do you know that the bike is not UK registered? Some guys delete or remove number plates from ads because they do not want to show the registration number. I would not assume that the bike is unregistered unless the seller has actually stated so.
**NO Number Plate **
Thanks for the input guys, the bike advert does show the year (2007) but no phone number for the seller. Hmmm ~ never bought from Gumtree before and am very Suspicious
a link to the advert?
